I love this place. Always a fab coffee in a lovely setting. My fave place to go on a sunny day and sit outside with friends. Friendly staff, too. So glad it's still there!

Lively independent coffee bar serving good coffee with outdoor seating area. Perhaps not the nicest spot in Beeston but I prefer to support the bean than the usual chain offerings. As is the norm these days there is a buy ten get one free loyalty programme.

Awful experience, especially the staff member with unkempt hair she was so rude to me, and in front of another customer who was not happy either. She asked me to leave the premises as i had been there more than 20 mins as my was time up. So do go if you want to be watched, timed, sneered spied on... More

As mentioned in previous posts I've always felt that independent coffee shops offer something that chain shops cannot. Whatever it is, I can't put my finger on it however Bean most certainly has it! Situated in a peaceful location in between the high street and Sainsbury's shoppers; Bean offers an idealistic place for a coffee. Regarding service I had no... More

So we just wanted a quick coffee and croissant before heading into town. Took ages, mainly because waiter kept getting order wrong. Coffee quite bitter. Wouldn't rush back.

Having recently started working in Bestow, came upon this by chance. Quite simply the best cup of coffee I have had in a long time. Pecan pie was excellent too. Friendly service and prices comparable with the ever encroaching chains but for a vastly superior product. Friendly service too. Will undoubtedly be back.

Great for catching up with friends. They make a very good Pecan pie, which reminded me of a visit to NYC. Great selection of coffee and serve a great tasting decaf, which is much appreciated when you're 8 months pregnant. Staff are friendly and didn't rush me, which can happen in (chain) coffee shops.

Rave reviews? Possibly, but maybe the reviewers had a different barista to the miserable individual we happened to interact with. Arriving at 17:44 were literally barred from entering by the barista (a dark-haired American or Canadian girl) stating "We're closing". 😳 Not for another 15 minutes surely, I asked. The barista said nothing, then repeated, "we're closing". 😳 To be... More

I visit here regularly and have sampled the hot chocolate, mocha and cappuccino. My main gripe is that quite often I find the chocolate just isn't hot enough. Some of the more chatty, friendlier staff have left recently so there isn't that familiar feel to the place that there once was. Maybe as the new staff settle, this will improve.
